Enlightened Wherever I Go {Eat Enlightened + Blend Swag Giveaway}

Two posts in a day, whoa whoa. This morning’s post was a big weekend recap, but this post right here is more exciting for YOU.

Enlightened sent me free samples to review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.


Before I left for Colorado, the jolly folks at Eat Enlightened sent me samples of their new Enlightened Crisps, which are…

  1. roasted broad beans aka fava beans
  2. 100 calories per serving (although it’s hard to just have one serving sometimes)
  3. soy and gluten free
  4. high in protein, clocking in at 7 grams per serving
  5. high in fiber with 3 grams per serving
  6. portable and convenient
  7. super crunchy
  8. available in five fantastic flavors: Sea Salt, Wasabi, Sriracha, Garlic and Onion, and Mesquite BBQ (my fave)
  9. available in snack packs or bigger bags for sharing (or not)
  10. made with real ingredients: fava beans, sunflower oil, seasonings, sea salt
  11. my newest snack addiction

I’ve been eating these crisps everywhere.

On the road:


To the summit of a mountain:

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset


On planes:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


To lunch at my internship:


You could say that I thoroughly enjoy them anywhere at any time. My favorite aspect of the crisps is their flavor—you seriously wouldn’t automatically think, “Ooo…these are healthy aren’t they?” I’m also a huge fan of their crunchiness and satiating power thanks to the protein and fiber.

My family also loves them! In fact, they love them so much that they started eating some of the samples I intended to save for this giveaway. They didn’t know, but after I saw it happening, I hid the rest. Gotcha back 😉

Hold up: Enlightened also has ice cream!


They have ice cream bars and ice cream sandwiches that are…

  1. 80 calories or fewer
  2. available in flavors like fudge, vanilla, peanut butter, coffee, orange cream, chocolate peanut butter swirl, salted caramel swirl, mint chocolate, and more
  3. high in protein with a whopping 8 grams
  4. high in fiber with 5 grams
  5. low in sugar with only 3 grams
  6. void of artificial sweeteners

There’s no way I could hog the enlightenment of these crisps for myself, so I’m giving away some of the loot! In addition, I’m making this giveaway even better by including some of my Blend swag in the package. As you might have seen this morning, I am still happily living off the immense amount of swag we received at Blend retreat, so I thought I’d share some.

  1. I really want to try the broad bean chips! My mom would boil a bunch for me when I was a child and we would eat them as an appetizer or while cooking the rest of a large Persian meal! Kinda like Middle Easter edamame, so this is a cool twist on a child comfort food 🙂

  2. Ohhh…the sriracha crisps sound right up my alley! I would love to try out these products, thanks for the awesome giveaway : )

  3. Oh my, Alison! This is such a generous giveaway! I have been itching to taste those Enlightened chips ever since I saw your Blend post. Honestly, I would want to try all of the Enlightened items… but I would most want to try the Garlic and Onion flavor chips. How can you go wrong? 😉 The ice cream is a huge plus… for me being an ice-creamholic.

  4. Today, stuck in bed with a sore throat in the (finally) summer weather, all I want to eat is a popsicle, that preferably has a little more substance than juice. Coffee and toasted almond flavored bars would do the trick marvelously. Weirdly, I’m never so aware of what my body needs than when I’m sick. Anyways, thanks for doing such a generous giveaway and sharing some of your Blend experience (both in words, as well as in the swag :p)!

  5. I ate roasted broad beans ALL the time in Peru! Loved them! Haven’t seen them in the States so I’m excited to try these 🙂

  6. My favorite form of enlightenment is the Holy Spirit… JK. All of that stuff looks so good! Especially the ice cream 🙂

  7. What an awesome giveaway! I’ve never had Enlightened products – I’d love to try any of them, but especially the Garlic and Onion flavor.

  8. My favorite is the sea salt! Also, Artic Zero is my favorite! I eat a whole pint every Friday and I don’t feel bad because it isn’t tooooo many calories

  9. This looks so good. I really want to try an ice cream sandwich 😍😍😍. But also I have never had a quest bar so that woul be very exciting to finally try.

  10. i’d like to try everything, but the roasted broad beans are at the top of my list, (and possibly a salad, in the near future)! 🙂

  11. I like the sound of garlic and onion, but trying new things is a must for me, especially cause I never do it but am usually pleasantly surprised when I do, so siracha sounds perfect!

  12. I would love to try any of the products you are so generously offering! However, if I had to choose one Enlightened item, I would like to try the plain sea salt broad beans. Yum
